Who's going?

This magnificent waterfall is probably the best I've been. Watching it from the corner makes you feel like you're in heaven and going into the fall is an experience that is out of this world. An absolutely amazing place to be if you're a fan of cold refreshing water after a tough hike.

The trail to this fall is tough, it's a 7-8 km hike in (total 14 km both ways) with average 30-40 degrees elevation. The main challenge of the trail is more on the river crossing than it is the elevation. Slippery rocks with water waist deep rushing water can be a little dangerous is you're not careful of your steps. Your shoes will definitely be wet if you're wearing your hiking shoes. There are at least 5-6 river crossing before getting to the first waterfall (Bomoh Ali Fall). This is a small waterfall with a nice pool to swim in, though the water is deep and the current near the fall is very very strong, so unless you're a great swimmer, it is not recommended to swim near that waterfall.

The next waterfall (Berembun Fall) is about 15 minutes ahead of the Bomoh Ali Fall and you must swim to get there. Water is deep and the current is strong (though not as strong as the one at the Bomoh Ali fall), so you should not attempt unless you're a strong swimmer. I would encourage all who wants to participate in this event to at least know how to swim. It's not a "must" as you can skip the last part of the hike where swimming is required. This means you won't be able to get to the best part of the trail, but you sure can take a dip at the shallow end of the river. 

After a day of trek and waterfall, lets’ head to Kuala Lumpur for good food and some shopping.  Irene a local and foodie will show you the good food that locals dine in.
